N.Y. prohibits two doctors from treating injured workersPosted On: Mar. 19, 2018 10:33 AM CST
The New York State Workers Compensation Board said Friday it has suspended two physicians from treating injured workers.
The board chair suspended Dr. William Vincent Jacobson III’s authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers comp system. Last year, Dr. Jacobson was convicted of aggravated driving while intoxicated, the board said in a statement.
In addition, Dr. Alan Ng was suspended for inappropriately prescribing medications, including controlled substances, to patients, the board said in a statement.
Both suspensions took effect March 15, 2018.
